Goat at the Manger & Hate Mail
A Goat in the Vatican Nativity
[Regarding the new Vatican Manger scene] I, too, was stunned to see this.
When you got to the part about taking out the ox and donkey and putting in a goat I became very uneasy, as goats have a very negative connotation in Scripture. What are they saying here?
On the Hate Mail
I just finished reading your latest post on the 'hate mail' subject. It is rather ironic that it is what the Church is accused of, these individuals choose to threaten you and make hateful comments, and evidently do not have the intellect to recognize it.
The comments on the Inquisition just go to show how thorough a job the enemies of Catholicism have succeeded in distorting the facts in order to justify their alienation from the true faith.
Our Lord was not very popular when He spoke the truth and we should expect to encounter the same treatment.
A good sign!

TIA as Home Page
I enjoy your website so much I have made it my home page. Thank you for making your viewpoints accessible on the Internet.
I turned 85 this month and my means are limited, so I cannot contribute to your agenda to save the Church from its enemies, many of whom purportedly profess to be Catholics.
Trumpets of the Apocalypse
Thank you very much for providing the source information for Paul VI's statement on the Trumpets of the Apocalypse.
I provided a link to your website and while I didn't get any concessions but silence from my debating opponents, I did receive private e-mails from others reading the discussion, thanking me for pointing to truly traditional sources.
Thank you for your efforts in waking up the Catholic populace to the crisis in the Church.
God Bless you and your work in the New Year,
Book of Gomorrah
I was wondering where I may be able to get a good copy of the Liber gomorrhianus, hopefully both in English and in Latin, without any modernist commentary.
Do you have any suggestions?
The important work by St. Peter Damian Liber Gomorrhianus [Book of Gomorrah] attacking the vice of homosexuality is available in Latin in the collection of the Latin Fathers (Patrologia Latina) by Migne (PL 145: 159-90). In a good Catholic library you can ask to make a xerox copy of it. It is a small book.
There have been several English translations of the Book of Gomorrah, one translated by Pierre J. Payer entitled Book of Gomorrah: An Eleventh-Century Treatise against Clerical Homosexual Practices (Ontario, 1982), and another entitled Book of Gomorrah, published by Laurier University Press in 1983. We don't know the quality of the comments or accuracy of the English translations.
You can find the central excerpt of it in English in Guimarães' book Vatican II, Homosexuality and Pedophilia.

Lefebvre's Letter Is Authentic
Dear Webmaster of Tradition in Action!
I found your interesting letter from Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre on the Feast of St. Augustine, August 29, 1987, saying "... The See of Peter and posts of authority in Rome being occupied by anti-Christs, ..."
I recently quoted this page of yours in a German speaking traditional catholic forum. (Kreuzforum)
Now some people have answered and presented further hard proof that this letter is authentic.
The Archbishop's entire letter is fully published in a German book named: Damit die Kirche fortbestehe (So that the Church continues to exist). The book is a collection of many sermons, letters, lectures, etc. of the Archbishop Lefebvre, and it's being published by the German district of the SSPX. The first printing was in 1992 and it is still available today in many SSPX chapels. The book contains a preamble of Father Schmidberger dated August 28, 1991, the then General superior of the SSPX.
This means the book is SSPX official and so is the letter you quoted.
You can find a copy of the book's letter here.
There's also a PDF version of the book (scanned).
I speak natively German and long year "school English". As far as I can tell, the letter you published is identical to the German translation in the book. The original is probably in French.
Picture of Our Lady of Loreto
I am looking for a picture of Our Lady of Loreto for a publication with the Litany of Loreto for our Rosary Society dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto.
I have looked on the net but haven't found a good picture to use.
Could you possibly help me?
Dr. Horvat responds:
I have some extra holy cards of the statue that I purchased when I made a pilgrimage to Loreto some years ago. I would be pleased to send them to you if you send your full mailing address, then you can scan them in high-resolution and use them for your Society.

Dear Mr Guimaraes,
Thank you for your meditation 'Christmas: Victory over the three egoisms'.
It was very helpful to me.
Woman in Pants
On your article Good Ideas Fit with Good Customs, I've been writing about this very subject about women and pants on traditional Catholic lists and I sure could have used your article because these women make all kinds of excuses like the young woman in London.
The excuses range from the pants look feminine to I have a feminist mother-in-law who hates men and wears skirts.
Thanks for your great article.
